New Project

So, I said a bit back that the SV went to my son to make room for the next project, and here it is.



It's a 1999 CBR600f4. The bike was my son-in-laws and was his first. He road it nearly daily up until a couple years ago and then he didn't ride as much. It's mechanically strong, but seems to have an electrical glitch somewhere, possibly from some aftermarkets things added, and partially removed, by the owner previous, and then compounded by it living year round outside in the weather, and rarely on a tender, the past few years. When my kids moved last December we could get it to jump, but died as soon as we removed the jumpers. I figured stator or rectifier. He didn't want a project bike and so we settled on a deal. It sat in their new garage over the winter, and just a couple weeks ago I went over to retrieve it, and this time after jumping it, she ran great. Rode it home from Tacoma, but the battery never took a charge. Jumped it again and tested the battery and got 14 volts so looks like stator and such are fine. A new battery is next. But along those lines I am going to go through the entire harness and fix some of the hackjob wiring that's been done.

Also, all new body work is in store (my son-in-law is not a painter ). I'm actually looking at race bodywork for it and cutting in a single, off-set, projector headlight ala '90s endurance bikes. We'll see about that. But it's been to long not having a sport-bike in the fold so I'm looking forward to seeing where this will go. Plus I plan to catch the entire process on camera.

Nice, always nice to see good bikes get a little love & care and back out on the road. I'm going to be seriously looking for a project bike myself after the summer.

Nice. I oddly like the paint scheme. I think you keep it, but maybe make it better.

Yeah, it would definitely be better if done in gloss rather than flat.

Since my plan is to replicate the older endurance racers I'm looking more towards an old school HRC red, white, blue scheme.

This is kind of what I'm thinking:

Sweet machine! I honestly like the colors, too - that's a pleasing blue - but it ain't my bike

Now I'm starting to think about building a street legal tribute to Nicky Hayden's first road race championship winning bike. AMA Supersport Champion in 1999.

A few more pics of what I have to work with. A previous owner had installed both an alarm (long removed) and a scrolling "reader" license frame and really messed up the wiring for the rear signals. Plus there is a non-stock relay under the seat (visible in one pic) that I'm pretty sure is for the alarm that somehow connects into the main wiring harness. Not quite sure how I'm going to deal with that yet.

So, I got the majority of the bodywork sanded and prepped for primer (other than the front fender which requires removal of the wheel. Waiting on the front stand that my son-in-law has for the bike, hopefully by the end of day tomorrow.



Lowers are already primed and waiting on paint.



While I'm waiting I am going to take some time to give the bare bike a good cleaning cuz it needs it. Don't mind the messyness. The shop is another work in progress. It started life as a small stable that my dad built for a pony back when I was 5. Now it has 40+ years of auto parts and house hoarding that I have to eliminate.

Those ram air ducts look super weird with the fairings off... Definitely looks like a project now, reminds me of the mess I made of my garage while repainting my STR.

PS: just noticed you're in Allyn, I head up to Seabeck a few times a year to hang out at a family friend's cabin. I'd love to have someone show me around that area at some point, I know there are some fun roads out there, just haven't had the time to explore!
